MINT 11/16-" Antique German Handmade AVENTURINE JOSEPH's COAT

Item# GM1788
This old JOSEPH's COAT strained the artists palatte with so many colors, but he primarily used a deep dark blood red, and a seldom seen teal with aventurine sparkles--best seen in the fifth and sixth pictures.
One pontail is partially ground and the other is a cute little melted pig-tail. With the evidence of the pontail marks and the brilliant colors, I would place the manufacture date circa 1880-1910.
CONDITION: MINT 9.6 I can find no sign of play or wear on the wet shiny surface. There are a few tiny shallow pinpricks that are clearly as-made and left the factory as part of the marble.
